Asheville Animal Rights Reading Group

Every third Friday from August 2018 until April 2020

Animals – loved, exploited, endangered, revered, killed, abused – who are they? Can we really know, and isn't each individual and not a representative of an entire species?

Join in to discuss these and many, many other questions around the furred, the four-legged, the winged, finned, webbed, the tiny and the large, and humanity's interactions with, responsibility to and for them. This group takes an animal-rights based philosophy, and looks at fiction, non-fiction, poetry and even articles to learn, to enjoy, and to figure out how we might be best of service to helping and saving these species we share the world with.

Please note: this group is aware of the intersection of the many issues of oppression, and strives to find books and articles related to animal rights and other rights issues, but it is primarily an animal rights group, and non-humans are their major focus.
